    Question how to get the IMEI number from server...

    hi all,
    From my J2ME application I am accessing the HTTP server. From the server side can I get the IEMI or mobile number of the User.

    Is it possible?
    Thanks & Regards

    Kannan.

    From mobile I can get it using that method...

    When my application accessing the webpage using GPRS I want to get the IMEI number or the mobile number from server side using the http request(no content send from mobile).

    Like, In web we can get the IP address of the user's machine.. like that I want to get the mobile number or IMEI number?
    Thanks & Regards

    Kannan.

    The server does not get the imei number during gprs / http.
    You can just examine the HTTP header and the server variables to see this yourself.
    How you do this depends on what you are using as server programming language.

    What you get on the server side is:
    - the user agent, which may helps you find out what kind of device you have.
    - the ip address, but this is probably only ip-address of the gateway from the mobile phone provider, so it is the same for many different phones.

    If you have an application that run on the mobile phone, you can send information to the server, in what ever format you like. But on many phones you will no able to access the imei even from your application.
